Five Benefits of a Barre Workout

Have you had a chance to meet at the barre yet? No, not that one. The one in our studio. Barre-based fitness classes have taken off in recent years and for a good reason. While it may look like the small isometric movements don’t do much for the body, it is in fact, the opposite. With the help of a simple ballet barre, clients can increase their flexibility, stamina, build strength and lose weight. Let’s break it down. What exactly is a barre workout? First things, first. You don’t need to be a dancer or have any dancing experience. A barre class follows a routine of warm-up, strength training using your body weight and core-focused moves.

What is TRX?

Let’s face it. We all want a total-body workout that doesn’t keep up at the gym for hours. Thanks to TRX, you can work your entire body in one session.

Five Reasons To Workout With Your Partner

Whether you struggle with motivation or just want an excuse to hang out with your sweetie more, exercising together may be your answer. When They Win, You Win Let's face it: you want your partner to be all they can be. And they want the same for you. Setting goals together and working as a team has far-reaching benefits. Working out together naturally strengthens your emotional connection by developing a phenomenon known as mimicry, or nonverbal matching. Learning your partner's nonverbal cues has implications for other aspects of life too. Imagine knowing what they are feeling without ever having to speak a word. It's almost like your own special communication. Say Farewell to Your Comfort Zone We all have our strengths. Your partner may be good at lifting weights. You...

Beginner’s Guide To Practicing Pilates

When we opened the studio in downtown Visalia a few months ago, we had a lot of people asking about Pilates. What is it? Can it help me? What are those machines? These are all great questions that our Beginner’s Guide will answer and hopefully inspire you to try a class.     What is Pilates? Pilates is an exercise regime that works your entire body with different sequences of machines and exercises, focusing primarily on your core. It works to gather the muscles that start two inches beneath your navel, continue two inches above your navel, and wrap entirely around your front and back side How is Pilates different from other forms of exercise? Unlike most exercises, Pilates is non-impact. It focuses on your body as a whole. Your...
